What is CBN?- Carolina Dream

What is CBN?- Carolina Dream

     CBN (cannabinol) is a minor non-intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis plants that is known for its sedative properties. It is formed from the degradation of THC over time, and is believed to have therapeutic applications including treatment of pain and inflammation. Unlike THC, CBN does not produce any psychoactive effects. CBN is found more in abundance in an aged cannabis plant. CBN is not mentioned by federal law as illegal. So, CBN is legal in the sense that it is not illegal when derived from hemp content.

     All the cannabinoids found in the cannabis plant work in various ways with the endocannabinoid system (ECS). All of the cannabinoids work together in different ways to encourage the best performance from the ECS. The effort of the cannabinoids working together is called an entourage effect. The National Cancer Institute reports that CBN can help manage insomnia and reduce seizures caused by epilepsy and also has sedative effects. CBN's ability to help both these disorders makes it an appealing treatment for people who are not typically consumers of THC & CBD products, or other medical treatment alternatives.

      CBN is not the end all be all when it comes to helping with sleep disorders but some research suggests that the cannabinoid may help impact sleep disorders. CBN's potential as a sleep aid makes it a good therapeutic candidate for those with insomnia and other related conditions, such as anxiety and depression.

     At Carolina Dream we encourage people to be skeptical about any claims being made by CBN isolate products. This is because there is still no hard scientific data that suggests definitively that CBN is a cure for sleep disorders or if it has psychoactive properties or intoxicating effects. However, CBN has a strong case for being a therapeutic aid for sleep.  Carolina Dream offers a full spectrum CBN product. Both their Drift gummies & Dreamer tincture. Both products are full spectrum CBD/CBN products.
